Mama Elephant Chinese New Year Lion Dance Double Slider Card

Hey Everybody!

I’m so excited to share this card. I absolutely love making double slider cards! Also, my new favourite stamp set is MFT’s Fireworks. If there’s ever a reason to own different glitter embossing powders, it’s to use with this stamp set. The fireworks are just so fun to create!

This is what I came up with:


I started by cutting out all the pieces to create the double slider. I ink blended the front panel and the 2 panels that slide out with Distress Oxide Inks Antique Linen, Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot.

I stamped out images from Mama Elephant’s Lion Dance and coloured them with Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencil Crayons. I used the following colours:

-Kids: E95, YR00, R29, R35, B97, B95, Y06, Y11, E47, E43, W9, W7, W5, Highlights with white gel pen.
-Lions: R29, R35, B02, Prismacolors Lemon Yellow, Sunburst Yellow, Pale Vermillion, Yellowed Orange, Cool Grey 20%, Indigo Blue, Peacock Blue, Ultramarine, Light Cerulean Blue, and True Blue

The also went over the lions with a Versamark Pen and heat embossed them with Recollections Ruby and Marine Tinsel Embossing Powder.

I heat embossed MFT’s fireworks with Simon Says Stamp Steel Navy and Antique Gold, WOW Cloud 9, and Recollections Ruby Tinsel, Marine Tinsel, Gold Tinsel, and Vintage Blue Opaque Blue Sparkle Embossing Powder.

I used some black card stock and die cut Mama Elephant’s Cityscape three times and glued them to my panels.

I assembled the double slider using a piece of packaging and scor tape and proceeded to adhere my stamped images in place. The two lions on the front are popped up with 3M foam tape.

I cut a piece of gold glitter card stock from Recollections Signature Metallics Paper Pad down to 11.3cm x 8.4cm. I didn’t want to waste the gold glitter card stock so I cut out the centre using the third largest rectangle from MFT’s Rectangle Stax Set 1. I also took a piece of dark blue card stock that matched the Chipped Sapphire on my card and die cut some visual interest with Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Windy Backdrop.

I adhered the panels together and onto a card base using my ATG adhesive.

This is what the card looks like open

So totally not a conventional Chinese New Year card. If you’ve seen Chinese New Year cards they’re usually red, yellow and gold, but with ink blending I did with the sky, a red card front panel just didn’t really match. Regardless, I still love this card and I hope you do to!

This card was also entered into Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge. This week’s theme is Alcohol. I don’t have any alcohol inks but the images were coloured with alcohol based markers. That counts right? You can check out challenge details or enter for yourself
